To the credit of Edward Norton, he's taking the high road.

Recently let go from The Avengers, and blasted by the movie studio for his lack of "creativity and collaborative spirit," the actor has posted the following message on his Facebook account.

In it, he expresses gratitude to his fans:

“As most of you know, I don’t like to talk much about the business of making movies because it means a lot to me to protect the audience’s fullest enjoyment of the “magic” that films can have. But I am so appreciative of the outpouring of support from fans of the Hulk and the Avengers that I feel it would be rude not to respond. So here goes: It seems it won’t work out for me to continue playing Bruce Banner for Marvel in The Avengers.”

“I sincerely hoped it could happen and be great for everyone, but it hasn’t turned out as we all hoped. I know this is disappointing to many people and that makes me sad. But I am very sincerely grateful to Marvel for extending the offer and even more so for giving me the chance to be a part of the Hulk’s long and excellent journey.

“And I really can’t thank the fans enough for how much enthusiasm you’ve sent my way about what Louis [Leterrier, The Incredible Hulk's director] and I tried to do in our turn with the legend. It means a lot to me. I grew up with Banner and Hulk and have been a fan of every incarnation.

I’m really proud, and very blessed, to have been one of them and will be thrilled to see him live on through other actors. Hulk is bigger than all of us, that’s why we love him, right?"

With Norton out of the picture, attention now turns to which actor might take on this role in the 2012 movie. Rumored candidates include Mark Ruffalo, Joaquin Phoenix and Billy Crudup.

Spencer Pratt has been very ... well, non-Spencer Pratt lately.

Uncharacteristically absent from the spotlight, he hasn't been seen in public in over a month, or on The Hills, where he and Heidi Montag were cut loose without any explanation from the show, which ends its six-season run tonight.

Might he be planning a surprise - and unwelcome - public foray this evening? Implying he may crash The Hills finale party, he Tweeted on Tuesday:

“Booking my room @Roosevelt Hotel Hollywood now that I have no place to live I think i should just move in there today (to) stay near the action.”

No place to live? We know he looks like a homeless man, but is Spencer Pratt really out on the street? At least he's comfortable as a mountain man ...

Wouldn't you know it, the Hollywood Roosevelt is the site of tonight’s finale party, for which Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag are not on the guest list.

Kristin Cavallari, Brody Jenner and other stars will be on hand, along with the show's two most famous alumnae, Lauren Conrad and Whitney Port.

No Speidi, though, after clashes with Hills creator Adam DiVello on and off set led to an unceremonious, unexplained parting of ways with the show.

Heidi's also moving forward with plans to divorce him, supposedly.

Cavallari calls the situation “sad,” and says as far as she knows, no one has spoken to either member of the duo since they last filmed together.

“I’ve reached out to Heidi,” says Kristin, who fixed up Speidi. “I can’t get a hold of her because she changed her number. I'd love to talk to her.”

Round one of the Melissa Etheridge/Tammy Lynn Michaels split has gone to the singer.

Following Etheridge's motion to dissolve her partnership with Michaels, the latter filed for full custody of the pair's children and stated that her ex has not been supporting her or the kids "financially and otherwise."

However, a L.A. County Superior Court judge shot down Tammy's request for $25,000 this week, as Etheridge's attorney convinced the court his client is, indeed, footing the bills for her family.

"[Tammy] is being completely supported by Melissa and has been since they separated," Neal Hersh told People. "She’s being well-provided for and then some, as are the children, which are Melissa’s first priority."

Hersh says these expenses include $2,000 a month, along with household bills and a car lease. Tammy's legal team doesn't dispute these facts.

Steven Knowles says "Melissa is paying various sundry expenses," but adds that his client and her three-year old twins are "destitute... It doesn’t put money in her wallet. Literally she has no cash."

Etheridge and Michaels were together for nine years. Sadly, it seems this break-up will get uglier before it gets any better.

After last week, The Bachelorette had its work cut out for it.

Not only were the stakes high for Ali with hometown dates looming, but the Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi clash made for riveting, must-see train wreck TV.

The hometown dates themselves last night? They all went well. Like, really well. She picked some good guys (mostly). Awesome for Ali, a little boring for us.

Still, there was plenty to like about the episode, and plenty of hometown drama for us to go over here in THG's patented plus-minus rundown of events ...

Roberto Martinez. Baseball uniform. Shameless, ABC. Plus 7.

Minus 3 for the wasted potential of baseball/dating puns (second base? eh?), but Plus 5 for Ali toeing the line between girly and sporty perfectly. So cute.

Beautiful Ali F.

Who will win the heart of The Bachelorette, Ali Fedotowsky?

The Bachelorette star? So what. Roberto Sr. wants to make sure Ali is good enough for his son. Plus 4 for him taking it to her, and for her handling it well.

If Roberto is the favorite, Chris Lambton is a close second. Ali Fedotowsky does seem to be a perfect fit in Chris' Cape Cod home. Bay State 4 life!! Plus 6.

Minus 5 for the slight overkill regarding Chris' mom. Yes, it's a big part of who he is, and he's very sincere. It's the producers who overdo this narrative.

How much do you want to swap your own family for Chris'? Plus 8.

The Lambtons are so, so genuine ... which ABC exploits with the bit about the mom "up there helping orchestrate all this"? It's The Bachelorette!! Minus 7.

Kirk DeWindt's date is the most awkward, as it involves two eccentric families and one taxidermist. But Plus 3, because everyone's really nice. It is Wisconsin.

  • Kirk DeWindt Picture
  • Frank Neuschaefer Picture

At elimination time, you knew it was coming down to Kirk or Frank.

The women in Kirk's life are salt-of-the-earth folks who clearly love Ali. The only problem is Kirk himself. Nice as he is, there's just something missing. Minus 2.

"Sometimes love is a complicated thing." - Frank Neuschaefer. Deep. How can this man not be a writer when contemplative musings like this flow so easily? Plus 5.

Frank really needs a new look. Not only are his glasses too small for his face, is that a cardigan over a wife-beater? He's like Mr. Rogers meets The Situation. Minus 7.

On a similar note, the fancy dresses don't work on Ali Fedotowsky. She can totally pull off anything, but more baseball jerseys, fewer pink flowery gowns! Minus 4.

Plus 6 for the grainy, dream-like flashback footage during host-pimp Chris Harrison's fireside chat with Ali ... makes Roberto and Chris look even more dreamy, no?

Again, Frank. Is that a tux and a sweatshirt at the rose ceremony? Minus 3.

If The Bachelorette spoilers are to be believed, we know who's in the final two. If the promos for next week are to be believed, Ali may be paying a second visit to Kirk's father's basement ... to stuff Frank's corpse in that freezer. Plus 8.

TOTAL: +13. SEASON: +143.

Roses: Roberto, Chris, Frank. Out: Kirk.

Who should Ali Fedotowsky choose?

Ah, so this is why he showed up at the London premiere of Eclipse.

While we're always happy to see the cute mug of Joe Jonas, we were perplexed by his presence at last month's event. Turns out, he's less a fan of The Twilight Saga in general than he is of a specific aspect of it:

Ashley Greene.

Sources tell OK! Weekly the two stars have grown close over the last few weeks, as they attended a King of Leon concert together recently and "there was definitely something going on, but it’s not serious," says an insider.

  • Actress on Tour
  • Joe J.

Another source - who refers to Green as a "maneater" - says Joe is "smitten" with the actress, but the feelings aren't exactly reciprocated: “I think he wants it to be more than she does right now."

Jonas is coming off a break-up with Demi Lovato, while Greene has been linked romantically to guitarist Jared Followill. If these two ever did get together, they'd have solid nickname potential.

Gonas? Jeene? We could get behind either option.

It was totally on last night between Danielle Staub and Teresa Giudice.

Complete country club chaos broke out on the Bravo hit, highlighted by these self-centered stars going at it. Let's see what our Real Housewives correspondent had to say about the exciting episode...

Seriously?  How much more screwed up can this show and these women get?  To top tonight’s country club mayhem the Housewives will have to get rocket launchers and reduce each other’s homes into rubble.  I don’t think any of us would be surprised if that happened.

The episode begins where we left off last week:   Teresa and Danielle engaging in momentary fake-nice small talk before everything turns into a major kerfuffle.  There is immediately a lot of shrieking and screaming, women forcing each other down into chairs, women rushing down darkened hallways, bodyguards pushing woman off to the side, dishes smashing, weaves swinging, heels breaking.

Thank goodness there are subtitles because nothing is comprehensible except for the random shouting of “bitch!”  The rest of it sounds like, “Aaaaaahhhhheeeerrrrraaaaanooooo!”  The jerkiness of the camerawork as it chases the Housewives is reminiscent of The Blair Witch Project and is, in many ways, equally as scary.

The Housewives Girl

At one point early in the brawl, Teresa says to Danielle, “So what, bitch?  I live in a $5 million home now.”  “And it’s in foreclosure!” screams Danielle.  This statement pisses Teresa off more than anything else.  “Danielle said my house is going into foreclosure.  It’s none of her business what’s going on in my life.  I was trying to be nice and Danielle started it,” she tells us. 

Pause for a moment:  I do hate Danielle and was secretly glad to see her getting hunted down like a gazelle on the Serengeti but Teresa really did start everything, at least on that night at the country club. Had she not insisted on approaching Danielle and “saying hi” nothing would have happened.  Or maybe the producers asked Teresa to approach Danielle?  I know huge fights like this can’t hurt the number of viewers the show attracts.  Thoughts?

As things escalate and women are running amok on broken heels, Danielle enlists the help of Kim G, of her bodyguard (no, not Discount Danny but don’t fret—he shows up later in the episode), and Kim G’s driver.  “Get me out of here!  I’m gonna pass out!  GET ME OUTTA HERE!” screams Danielle as she hides in a corner outside. 

Evidently she can’t move because her heels are broken.  “I can’t walk!” She is a sobbing and crying mess.  It’s not pretty but, man, is it ever funny.

Don't You Ever!

Then occurs the moment that will be re-lived by Danielle non-stop for years to come:  Jacqueline’s wayward daughter Ashley comes up and yanks on Danielle’s weave.  Supposedly she did this because she thought Danielle had punched her mom but, secretly, I think she did it just because she wanted to.  If I saw Danielle in real life I’d probably want to do the same thing. 

The next thing we know, the bodyguard is carrying Danielle to Kim G’s Bentley.  In the car Kim G is screaming in Danielle’s ear. “Listen to me!  Stop!  Calm down, please!!”  Sorry, Kim G, Danielle probably won’t calm down for a few more years.

Though we are all worn out just watching this crap, Teresa is still rearing to go.  “I wanna talk to the bitch,” Teresa explains to Jacqueline as she approaches the Bentley where Danielle is hiding and having hysterics.  Jacqueline is perplexed.  “Why?!  What is the point?!  Let her live her miserable life. She’s miserable.  Let her live it.  Who gives a shit?  Who cares?”  Silly Jacqui!  You’re talking to Teresa like she understands you and has a grasp on reality! 

Ha, ha.  So funny.

Meanwhile Danielle is still screaming and crying in the Bentley.  “I really feel very violated by Ashley. And I’m gonna feel violated by Jacqueline,” she says.  Then Danielle demands that the cops be called and charges be pressed while Teresa dances around the parking lot and Jacqueline stands there petting her baby seal coat, just waiting for some more crazy shit to go down. 

“Look at all this hair she pulled out of my head!  That’s not even my extension!  That’s my hair!”  I love it that Danielle isn’t even embarrassed to admit she has a weave.  Not in this time of great personal misery and stress!

The 90-day jail sentence she just received should be a wake-up call for Lindsay Lohan, a reality check for a star who's lost her way and gone off the rails.

But it won't be, according to Stuart Goldberg.

The attorney who sat down with the mess this past weekend says she still isn't fully aware of her dire situation, and is essentially a "fragile, lost child."

"I found her not fully forewarned of the consequences of her actions," Goldberg told People. "She's not disciplined, tethered enough to the reality of adult consequences. She doesn't seem to have awareness of what's going to befall her."

Comes from upbringing. Just saying, Dina.

In Good Spirits (Mostly)

Goldberg, who was courted by the family after Lindsay's previous attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, threw in the towel, recently met with Lohan, her mom Dina and younger sister Ali at the actress's West Hollywood apartment.

There, he outlined his requirements for representing her – "100 percent loyalty and zero tolerance for dishonesty." Stunningly, he opted not to take the case.

At one point, Goldberg, worried Lohan "was in a dangerous state," asked if she might hurt herself. "She started sobbing quietly. She was genuinely in pain."

While he advised Lindsay, whose terrible attitude is well-known, to move out of L.A., a "toxic environment for her," the actress didn't seem open to the idea.

"She was like Teflon to that comment," the attorney says. "It just slid right off her. She seemed to have some inner deep sadness that that was her fate."

"My real worry for her is not just the jail time," he adds, "but my fear is that she's overly susceptible to a probation system that's set up for her to fail."

Lindsay Lohan belongs in ...

Continuing to recycle the same handful of dudes on a rather prolific basis, Audrina Patridge is reportedly dating Corey Bohan again, according to reports.

Hey, whatever works for a soon-to-be-unemployed reality TV star.

Bohan and Patridge

She recently broke up with Ryan Cabrera, and was pretending to have all these feelings for Justin-Bobby for the fourth consecutive season on The Hills.

But it's Aussie BMX biker Corey who has won her heart. This minute.

The two appeared together at Saturday series wrap party for The Hills, which goes off the air tonight, and according to insiders, were more than friendly!

Audrina and Corey during one of their earlier stints.

A close source confirms: "They are totally back together. They were so cute at the party. He had his arm around her and they both looked really happy."

Nice to see they've patched things up.

Audrina split with Bohan last fall, but that's all water under the bridge now: "They were sitting alone, whispering in each others' ears and laughing a lot."

Certainly a step up from Justin-Bobby, but then again who isn't? Hopefully they have fun before Audrina says she has to "focus on me" or some lame BS.

Pencil that in for September-October.

Trolling for dirt on Luc Carl? Don't expect much from his work.

The New York City bartender and ex-boyfriend of Lady Gaga, who is reportedly back together with the singer now, works at St. Jerome's in the East Village.

Recently Lady Gaga has been hanging around the bar again, fueling speculation that she and Luc Carl are back together. If so, they are keeping it very quiet.

His co-workers protect his cover, too. Customers have spotted a sign over by the telephone that instructs employees to tell callers, "I don't know Luc."

Luc Carl's pseudo-celebrity status hasn't stopped Gaga from stopping by. She visited him on Saturday night, one day after she rocked the Today show.

Today Show Angel

Sounds like Luc Carl is Gaga for this lovely Lady again.

Sipping red wine at the bar with her bodyguard, "She was playing it really cool," a witness says. "You would not have even known they were together."

According to Gagapedia, Luc Carl is a club promoter, musician, DJ, author, bartender, personal trainer, and semi-pro bowler from Omaha, Nebraska.

It's unclear when they got back together, but he currently lives in New York City, and works at two bars, St. Jerome's, and Welcome To The Johnsons.

He dated Lady Gaga for three years, and is the source of inspiration for many songs she wrote during that time - including her newest, "You and I."

Here's hoping it works out!
